Part 3: introduction This year’s examination was attempted by a total of 818 Candidates, a slight increase in comparison with last year. Of those candidates, 462 took the examination in the UK while there were 356 candidates overseas. The UK pass-rate was most satisfactory, 51.7% compared with 38.8% in 1994; there were, however, 49 candidates fewer. The oversea candidate figure of 356 can be split between the Hong Kong centre and a further 35 centres each accommodating between l-10 candidates. In Hong Kong the number of candidates was 272, an increase of 41 compared with 1994 the pass-rate, however, dropped by 5.5% to 30.9%. Amongst the other 84 oversea candidates, only 17 achieved a pass which produced a poor pass-rate of 20.2%.

The overall pass-rate this year was a respectable 41.6% - an increase of 3.8% compared with last year. The most popular question
